Our room was cozy and comfortable. There were plenty of breakfast options! Eggs, bacon, sausage, breads, meats, cheeses, vegetables, fruits, yogurts, cereals, and there were signs indicating what was gluten free (including gluten free crisp bread and gluten free muesli, or granola). The hotel is walking distance to the city center, but it's also near a bus-line. Right behind the... More

We stayed at the scandic Vulkan at Oslo. The hotel website looked very nice and everything looked oké in the beginning. Untill we came in our room. It was a horrible room and prehistoric.

Loved the location of this hotel. It's within walking distance of the city centre, and right above Mathallen, where you can buy all the food you might wish for, and then some. The staff was very friendly, the breakfast was as expected, and it all looked clean and new. However, the rooms were quite small. We had a superior room,... More

My first impression when I entered the room was: "Wow, strange lay out!". When entering the room I came into a tight corridor which turned left, passing a desk and the bathroom on the left side. And then, at the very end the bedroom area revealed itself with almost panorama view. It felt slightly cramped, but the big windows overlooking... More

Business trip March'14. Location is great, not in the tourist area (Karl Johan gt), but where people live. Close to the food market and Grunerlokka. Clean, fresh rooms. Nice food. Restaurant in several small areas, you avoid the canteens feeling! Polite staff.

We stayed at the Vulkan June 20-22. Elias took very good care of us, from check in to check out. We had a little problem with our first room (plugged shower drain) so he immediately upgraded us to room with an amazing view and huge windows. The Vulkan is next to a food lovers dream - the Mathallen Oslo. Lots... More

We upgraded to a superior room and the view was fantastic. They have floor to ceiling windows all around the room. Perfect location- there are plenty of bars and restaurants close by and it is about a 20 minute walk from the bus/train station.
